FAQ’s

Is this adventure right for me?

This retreat to Death Valley is perfect for you if you are an active person ready to get out for an amazing yoga adventure with like-minded people. We will experience most places by hiking in a desert environment and you can expect daily yoga practices in the morning and evening.

We have planned the days to include plenty of downtime to relax enjoy the surroundings and hotel amenities. You don’t need any yoga, hiking or horseback riding experience, just an open mind, open heart, and a reasonably good fitness level.

This trip may not be right for you if you have conditions or injuries that limit your ability to participate in these kinds of activities as many locations do not have alternate points of access. Please consult with your physician to make sure these activities are safe for your body. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs.

Am I required to participate in all the activities?

Your trip, your time!  

While we have planned this adventure to provide a good balance of activity and downtime, we understand that you may wish to ‘sit this one out’ occasionally.  Maybe sleep-in instead of doing a sunrise meditation or spend time in the spa instead of on the trail.  That’s fine by us as long as you let your trip leaders know your plan so we can work with you. Most of our retreats are lodging based so you can easily stay and relax instead of participating in an activity and we work to make sure we have alternatives for anything on a trip that might be more difficult than the rest of the itinerary. However, on trips where we have a moving base, transition day activities may be required to get from one point to another in the journey.

What if I am not a yogi or hiker?

All of our adventures are accessible to people with different skill levels. You don’t need any yoga experience or hiking experience for this trip. However, like any other travel adventure, you will get more enjoyment out of the trip if you prepare. We recommend that you increase your level of activity prior to the trip to improve your stamina and cardiovascular strength. A weekly half day hike in nature, daily walks, and a yoga practice a few times per week will definitely pay off on the trail.
